Webinar: Community Development = Healthy Neighborhoods

Where people live has a profound impact on their health. This strong link between health and place points to the important role of community development in addressing the social, economic and physical factors that influence the length and quality of life.

In this webinar leading experts discussed:

  • How the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps model, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, can be used as a framework to support effective and sustainable solutions for community health
  • How comprehensive neighborhood revitalization strategies can incorporate a broad range of solutions for healthy, active living
  • How affordable housing can be tapped as a vehicle for improving health outcomes, through best practice in creating green and healthy housing and connecting housing residents with health and wellness services
